actually I'm not so sure here...
If I do the following:
apt-get source kernel-image-2.4.27-r5k-cobalt
I pretty much get the "kernel-patch-2.4.27-mips-2.4.27-7.040815" in /usr/src :)
(including .dsc and .tar.gz)
implicitely "dpkg-source -x kernel-patch-2.4.27-mips_2.4.27-7.040815-1.dsc" is
done by apt-get then. well I do
cd /usr/src/kernel-patch-2.4.27-mips-2.4.27-7.040815/
and try to "dpkg-buildpackage"
this is where it tells me about the 2.4.27-7 requirement, which I filled in
trying to sole this by apt-getting it form /unstable.
afterwards "make-kpkg clean" during the above buildpackage call complains about
not having "kimagesrc" set and bails out, I tried to set ARCH SUBARCH
KPKG_SUBARCH KPKG_ARCH to mipsel and r5k-cobalt, but still "make-kpkg clean" is
pretty unhappy about it and tells me kimagesrc is probably missing because it
can't determine the arch/subarch...

uhm - I'm a non-guru here - if you could explain this a bit more to me please?
(or send me to rtfm :))

that's what I'm doing as described above I hope, but somewhere on the way I
still get stuck with dpkg-buildpackage.

thank you for your support
